KCL 2018 Beauty Awards

Welcome to the latest beauty edit and the very first beauty awards here on the blog! I’ve tried so many wonderful beauty products this year and wanted to let you guys know which were my top must-have products of the year. I’ve picked from new and small businesses only, as I love to work with indie brands. And like most of the beauty brands I review; most of these are organic, natural, and cruelty-free.

These are the items that long after the required testing and promotion period, I find myself still using and preferring above any others. The're the products which despite a never ending stream of free PR samples, I would still spend my own money (and in some cases have) in order to get more of. And whether affordable or more costly, these are the beauty products that I truly think are worth the price. So if you’re thinking about adding more beauty or selfcare products into your 2019 routine, I highly recommend each of these brands.

The Most Wearable Nail Trends from NYFW Fall 2013


There was a lot of nail art at New York Fashion Fall 2013. Nail art is most popular on the west coast and has been gradually making it's way east. After many celebrities including Kelly Osbourne and Anne Hathaway sported the nail trend on the red carpet these past few months, the trend has exploded. It's no surprise it was all over the runway during fashion week and will continue to be a huge nail trend for 2013 and will last into the fall and winter months.

For those of us who can't get into the nail art (like me), there are some much more wearable nail trends for 2013. Designer Phillip Lim featured a glossy winter white, while others had their models wearing muted tones of grey, olive, and nude. Black was also a popular nail color on the runway; the main difference in the previously trendy color being a textured or matte finish. Proving that oxblood ( a deep shade of red) will be a color trend lasting into Fall, Zac Posen and Danijo featured glossy oxblood nails. Several other designers went with classic red nails, including Badgley Micshka, who debuted Deborah Lippmann's red metallic shade with a matte finish called "Red Silk Boxers" (pictured bottom left) to be a part of her 2013 holiday collection.

Whenever new trends in nail color come out, I tend to save money by mixing my pre-existing colors. Create your own oxblood shade by adding a few drops of black to a classic glossy red polish. You can achieve the popular matte finish on any of your favorite shades with the Lippmann Collection Flat Top the Matte-Maker Top Coat Nail Polish.
